Have you ever purchased makeup online, crossing your fingers and hoping the color you get actually looks like the color online? I know I have, and quite frankly, I’m shocked most of the time. Yes, there will be slight differences and even from computer to computer colors may look different. But things like this – really? Something has to change!
Take the color shown above. It’s the color Splendid shown on the Dolce & Gabbana website. To me it looks like a somewhat natural color – a little brown, a hint of a coral in with the pink. Like a little more natural lip toned, but with a hint of oomph. I took my chances and purchased this lipstick online.
Now, look what the actual color looks like. Does it look anything like the online shades look? I think not! It is actuallly a VERY hot pink. Wow – what a difference! Please, online sellers of makeup – make your colors more realistic on your sites, it’s so important!
